This weekend promises in-person music, theater and art, plus a participatory altar honoring loved ones who’ve passed on.

Here’s a cross-section of the activities offered across the North Olympic Peninsula.

• The Out Loud Story Slam happens in person at the Olympic Theatre Arts Center, 414 N. Sequim Ave., Sequim, tonight.

Storytellers with five-minute true tales are invited, as are listeners, starting at 7 p.m.

Admission is $10, and all attendees must show proof of full vaccination or a negative PCR test from the past 72 hours.

Details about the story slam tradition can be found at clallamstorypeople.org while would-be participants can contact organizers Nessa Goldman and Jeanne Sparks at [email protected].

• “Into the Woods” unfolds at the Port Angeles High School Performing Arts Center, 304 E. Park Ave., this weekend.

The final three performances, starring some two dozen student actors plus a chamber orchestra, start at 7 p.m. tonight and Saturday and at 2 p.m. Sunday.

Theater-goers have the option of attending in person or watching the show online.

The quintet, featuring Cort Armstrong, Sean Divine, Joey Gish, Paul Stehr-Green and Angie Tabor will play for a couple of hours; cover charge is $5 and information awaits at finnriver.com.

• “Death, Grief & Ancestors” is the theme of a community altar and art exhibit at the Cotton Building, 607 Water St., Port Townsend, all weekend.

Admission is free, and the public is welcome from noon to 8 p.m. Saturday. On Sunday, “death cafe” discussions are planned: for the Black and indigenous and other people of color from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and for the general community from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. A meditation is also set for 12:30 p.m. All participants are welcome, while the building won’t be open to the public during these sessions. The altar and art show will then reopen to all comers until 5 p.m. Sunday.

Key City Public Theatre actor Bry Kifolo guides the hour-long stroll through the Victorian seaport’s past starting from the Haller Fountain at Taylor and Washington streets.
